Customers at a popular Huddersfield takeaway helped raise £2,000 for Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
Last month staff at Marstons Chicken Shop in Leeds Road, Bradley, sold chicken for just a £1 with all proceeds going to the charity.
Over three days the shop served up 2,074 specials – chicken, chips and a dip – and this week handed over a cheque for £2,074.
It’s the second fundraiser of its kind organised by Marstons. Last August the shop celebrated its 30th anniversary by selling two chicken legs and chips for a £1 and raised £3,000 for Kirkwood Hospice.
Back in August there were huge queues and long waits so the offer was scaled down – one leg instead of two – and the waits were kept to a maximum of 20 minutes.
Shop supervisor Andy Dransfield said: “We learned the lessons from last time and everything went a lot more smoothly this time.
“We’ll definitely do it again because there’s always a real buzz about the shop but we won’t do it too often. We want to support charities and good causes.”
Marstons is run by Andy’s mum Hazel and her sister Jane Atkinson. It was set up in 1985 by their father John Marston, a farmer in Colne Bridge.
